ORANGEBURG, S.C. (WIS) - South Carolina State University (SCSU) has begun to break ground on a new pavilion.

School officials say the plaza will be located in the SCSU Student Plaza and will serve as a gathering spot for students throughout the school year.

According to SCSCU, the $552,000 project — which will serve as an extension to the K.W. Green Student Center — includes an outdoor dining area along with a movie wall and outdoor basketball goals surrounding the pavilion.

“Just another place for students to have a central place where they can get together, you know maybe do a concert under there, step show under there, whatever they want to do, which gives them a new area to do those things in,” Associate Vice President of Facilities Ken Davis said.

“This will open up in a big way for people to interact and really feel at home, especially for the incoming freshmen where they can get the HBCU experience that the Alumni has worked for,” rising sophomore Zane Prioleau said.

SCSU also said work will start this fall on remodeling the Kirkland W. Green Student Center using $4.4 million in state funding along with a $20 million allocation for additional space.
